Giving Thanks for Social Media Friends - Piper

Please welcome Piper as she gets ready to give thanks to a group of special Social Media friends. I "met" Piper over on Make Under My Life as she was getting ready to launch her online store. She was struggling with colors and fonts of her logo wanting it to be "perfect". It immediately resonated with me as I remember my own struggles. It is one thing I wish someone told me 5 yrs ago when I started my company, it can be tweaked later...don't let "perfect" hold you back! Please pop over to Piper's new online store, I am sure you too will find many many pieces to add to your wish list!


Hi everyone! This is Piper from one sydney road and I'm thrilled that Julieann asked me to participate in this series!  A bit about myself:  I recently opened an online boutique, one sydney road where my mission is to have fresh, inspired items for you and your home!  You’ll find new, handmade and eco-friendly goodies all designed by indie artists.  My hope is that you leave the store feeling inspired (and have a bit of fun too!!)  I also blog under the same name – think design inspiration and lots of cool finds – kind of my personal journal of things I’m loving.


I know I’m supposed to write about one person I’m grateful for…but I can’t limit it to one!!  Just to name a few since I can't name everyone...Brandi from Not Your Average Ordinary has been such a terrific sounding board, Katrina from Pugly Pixel was my first commenter and we've been friends ever since and Rachel from La Bella Bash has been a great brainstorming pal! When I started my blog a year ago, I did it just as a creative outlet.  I completely did not expect the friendships that have formed!  Who knew, right?  It still amazes me!! I’ve found this wonderful and talented community of people who are just so darn supportive and have truly become friends! They’ve all extended a lending hand, some advice or just listened to me go on and on as I was working on starting my store and are just about the best cheerleaders a gal can ask for!  


So here’s a photo of one of my fave dining rooms where I would love for us all to meet up for cocktails and dinner, just don’t expect me to cook!  I’ll get the hubby to do that.  I promise to provide the d├ęcor, drinks and entertainment!
